Pros: It's hard to beat the D90 for price and performance. I love my camera. The lens is awesome for family portraits, up close and personal shots for indoors. Does a fine job outside of course (landscapes, flowers, birds), but sometimes you need more zoom. You'll end up with more than one lens. This kit has everything you need to get started. The tripod is small and portable. UV filters. Everything you need to get started.
Cons: I did not like the camera bag which was offered with this kit. The seller provided a new bag on request. Thank you Sunset Electronics and thanks Newegg for always having the best deal.
Summary: I've owned my D90 for three years and it is the best Digital camera I've ever owned (I am a life long Nikon user going back to the 1970's). It takes fantastic pictures and is solidly built. And it is the right size for me.
Summary: I think that is really good product. and I bought it for my Dad. bought this product mainly because I'm a fan of the Nikon brand. have the better technology, better design, improved ergonomics and especially the optical quality, therefore the best photo quality. My first camera was Nikon SLR and now continued to be loyal to the brand with this DSLR. Everything in the D90 I like, I did not find any fault or downside.
An exceptionally good choice in DX format digital cameras

Summary: A truely sweet camera. I bought mine used on eBay with 35,000 clicks and it works like a charm. I wanted a backup to my new D7000 that had similar handling characteristics and controls and found this to be just about perfect for my use, in fact, I was out shooting around my workshop, thinking I was shooting the D90 when I happened to finally realize I was actually shooting the D7000 so I proved myself right in short time.
Wonderful camera and simple to use - great results.

Summary: I was probably the last photographer to make the switch to digital. The D90 convinced me it was the time. I've never been sorry I made the change. The ease of handling is typical of Nikon. I've used it for sports, travel, landscape, people pictures and many other things. One expression I often hear from others is "Oh, it's a Nikon. No wonder the results are good." I have put my Nikon film cameras away and haven't used them since buying my D90.
Excerpt: I won this camera from a random drawing on a blog, so I didn't pick it out after considering a lot of different models. If I did have to pick it out and pay for it myself, here's what I would have to say about its pros and cons from an amateur perspective: For casual photographers, the video function is good. I don't have to use two different cameras if I want to take pictures and video.
Excerpt: I am a Nikon D90 owner for about a year and a half. I am not a professional photographer, just an amateur, i love taking photos in everyday life, so my review is solely from my own experience and won't include any tech savvy lingo. I purchased my camera as soon as it came out in the market.
Excerpt: I started out with the D40x to a D80 and upgraded to the D90. The simple fact that the D90 basically shared the same sensor as the D300/D300s, the D90 was a no brainer. I have always been a fan of the ergonomics on the Nikon system. The high-ISO ability on this camera is wonderful. That combined with the fast burst-rate and built-in autofocus motor makes this an ideal setup for anyone – amateur or even the professional.
